Theme: The Moonshot

What is Moonshot Thinking? The combination of a huge problem, a radical solution to that problem, and the breakthrough technology that just might make that solution possible, is the essence of a moonshot. The term “moonshot” derives from the Apollo 11 spaceflight project, which landed the first human on the moon in 1969. “Moonshot” may also reference the earlier phrase “shoot for the moon” meaning aim for a lofty target.

Time: 9AM - 8PM

(This will be followed by short networking sessions with our speakers and attendees)

Venue: Multipurpose Hall, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Sri Iskandar, 32610 Teronoh, Perak, Malaysia.

The Venue:

Seri Iskandar is a town and district capital of Perak Tengah in Perak, Malaysia. It is located at about 40 km southwest of Ipoh on the main Ipoh-Lumut highway. The adjacent towns are Tronoh, a once-famous mining town and Bota. Universiti Teknologi Petronas, a branch campus of Universiti Teknologi MARA and Kolej Profesional MARA are located in Seri Iskandar. Construction works for UCSI University is under progress and target to commence classes in mid 2018. The prospect of the town is looking good and will emerge as the “University Town” like Kampar.


We signed up a fabulous venue for the event, a hall which was recently renovated to host events in the university, the venue also attracts and hosts big events from gala dinners to town halls to convocation dinners and shows.

Multipurpose Hall is set with world class facilities and fully accessible with conditioned mobility and free wi-fi. A number of activities will take place in the event hall on the day of the event, inside and outside Multipurpose Hall.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
